The PGA is carried out by a facilitation team which engages in data compilation (at a distance), direct observation and dialogue with people in the organization (working at the headquarters of the institution audited for 1–2 weeks). Following group participation and collective discussion, a report is produced that describes the organization’s capacity to promote gender equality and diversity, indicating its strengths and weaknesses.

The audit process ends with the delivery of a final report to the management of the organization audited. Subsequent technical activity for planning and follow-up of the actions resulting from the Audit (list of recommendations: action plans, policies, standards, training programmes, and so on) is additional and defined separately from the audit itself.
